Ahead the 2019 general elections, a political group in Bauchi State, Bauchi Youth Democratic Actors Assembly (BAYODAA) has urged electorates in Bogoro, Dass and Tafawa Balewa local governments Federal constituency of Bauchi State to re-elect the Speaker House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara to continue in 2019 to enable him add more to his good works not only in the three areas but the whole state.
The Chairman of the group, Ibrahim S. Aliyu who stated this while speaking with journalists in Bauchi yesterday lauded the Speaker for constructing mosques, churches, farm markets in villages and facilitating federal roads in the state worth over N50 billion.
Aliyu also applauded Dogara for offering free medical care to patients across the 20 local governments on yearly basis.
The Chairman of the group said, “the recent one was conducted in March this year when about 10, 000 patients drawn from across Bauchi State as well as neighbouring states were treated free of charge courtesy of the speaker”.
He recalled that during the exercise, 77 patients suffering from different health problems underwent surgeries free of charge.
“Of the 77 surgeries carried out, 28 were cataract operations, four patients with goitre and six women with uterus cancers were successfully operated on. This is just as he sponsored surgery for the separation of conjoined twins at Abubakar Tafawa Balewa Teaching Hospital Bauchi”. Aliyu said.
The group maintained that although the Speaker comes from the Sayawa minority tribe, he is loved by all tribes in the state because he extended his projects to all parts of Bauchi state and not only the three local governments he represents.
Aliyu said, “I therefore call on them to come out in large number and vote Dogara in 2019, and I equally appeal to members of the House of Representatives to also retain him as speaker because he has proved to be a good son, ambassador and representative of the Nigerian masses “.
